SAMS Outdoor Education Students in action – cross country skiing and more!

SAMS Outdoor Education program would like to thank the Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart program for their $2000 donation towards purchasing cross-country skiing equipment for the PE and Outdoor Ed classes. We have been cross-country skiing on the school property learning the basics, many are new to cross-country skiing and doing exceptionally well. The Outdoor Education Program recently went cross-country skiing down the Nusatsum Road.

Thank you to SD 49, the bus garage and Sara Germain for your help.Skiers chose their distance to challenge themselves (4, 6, 8 or 10km). We will also be participating in a cross-country ski race on Sunday, March 3, the 27 Annual cross-country Ski Race. Students will be volunteering, racing or both.

SAMS Outdoor Education program also received $5000 from BC Hydro to repair/rebuild the boardwalk.OE Students as well as other classes will be an integral part of the planning and building process. Our main contribution will be in removing the old boards and packing the lumber for more experienced builders.

This will reduce costs and enable our students to be part of the process. We’ll also be looking for community donations to adopt sections of the boardwalk. The boardwalk is heavily used by the school, community and tourists and we are very excited to get started in the spring. We are currently applying for another grant through the Pacific Salmon Foundation.
